The educational principle of the School of Health Studies, newly-formed as of April 2018, is to cultivate personnel who can support a future society where everyone can have a healthy life. Japan is facing a level of population aging that is unprecedented in the history of humankind, and there is not just one solution for the various problems associated with this issue. There are many approaches. In the School of Health Studies, students obtain scientific evidence-based specialized knowledge and skills related to food/nutrition, exercise and mental health. At the same time, students develop their management skills from a base of knowledge drawn from social science-related fields such as community social work, sociology, and economics.
I look forward to meeting our first class of students, who will be able to propose and implement solutions to the health issues facing individuals, families, regions, society and even the world.
